Letters,

Happy Birthday

Dear ๐Ÿ’žMentsuen,

The first time I saw you, I was afraid to hold you. Because I didn’t know how to. ๐Ÿ’•You see, I had never held a newborn before. But the realization that you were my daughter gave me the courage to take that leap of faith.
I held you, dearly.๐Ÿ’“ But my attention was not fully on you. You see, I was still waiting to see your mother out of the OT.๐Ÿ’Ÿ Tears! Of joy on your birth. Of fear for your mother’s pain.

But! Everything became alrite. Friends and ๐Ÿ’family gathered to celebrate your birth. And you grew.

Sitting, crawling, teeting, shitting, and finally ‘Da-da-ing’ to me.
I am sorry that I can’t give my full attention to you, but I do love๐Ÿ’— Buchung too, ๐Ÿ’˜so I gotta divide it by three.

So you see, you brought life back to my life. But you gotta understand that your๐Ÿ’– mom has her hands full with you and Buchung, that’s why she can’t reach everywhere. You gotta learn to be with Da-da too.๐Ÿ’ž Anyways, on your 1st birthday, please forgive me for not being with you. I will make it up in a grand way later on.

Happy Birthday girl๐ŸŽ‚,
Sing me a melody,
And dance me a song,
I๐Ÿ’–U.

With lots of โ€๐Ÿ’—&๐Ÿ’‹,
Da-da.
